"Stretch" a poem by @kristyf1504

Posted by on

Stretch. 

It’s good for you. 

Until 

It is your skin

Marks

Reaching for new heights

Marks

Define your stomach

Your thighs

Your arms

And stretching

Is no longer good for you. 

 

But those marks

Those stretches

Are x’s on the map

That is your body

Showing the treasured way

Your body adapts

And grows

And changes. 

 

So stretch. 

Reach as high as you can. 

And do not hide it when your skin 

does the same. 

These marks

Are made of gold

Are made of skin

Are made of you. 

Stretch.
